A couple of years ago I never thought I would be saying that Center Parcs is one of my favourite places to go on holiday. Honestly, it had never really appealed to me as I would have much preferred a city break. However, when we visited for the first time in 2017 I fell in love immediately and since then have now been back another few times. Our most recent visit was for a midweek break in March 2020. We had only ever been in October before this year so I wanted to write about how our holiday was different.

Collaborative post Over the years we have been lucky enough to go on quite a few different kinds of holidays. We have been to lots of places such as a holiday to Majorca, a couple of days in Ipswich and even places like Center Parcs. However, we are a family of non-drivers and this can sometimes restrict where we can travel to and can cause issues when trying to book our holidays. Although things can sometimes be difficult we do always manage to go somewhere and have a fantastic time. Nor being able to drive doesn’t have to totally restrict where
AD | Contains some gifted trips and days out I love nothing more than a day out, weekend away or a holiday. Although money has been tight for the past few years I have tried to make sure that we budget and save to ensure that Erin gets these experiences. I never did nearly as much when I was a child and I want Erin to have adventures and to discover new places. We were very lucky to have some great experiences in 2019. January Like a lot of people we had a very quiet January. With Christmas and Erin’s
AD | Press Trip Earlier this month I had a very last minute opportunity to go on a press trip to discover Stoke-on-Trent at Christmastime. Deciding to say yes at around lunchtime and leaving at 7pm the same day was a bit manic, especially as it meant being away when my Mum moved in. The lovely Sarah from Boo Roo and Tigger Too who also lives in Norfolk came to pick me up before making the journey up to Stoke.

I wanted to give her a treat before Christmas and I also had some vouchers for a previous collaboration t use up. Up until now, I haven’t been able to spend much time with Mum on her own because of Erin so I thought a little getaway would be a great idea. Unfortunately, my journey did not start off well. Thanks to horrendous
AD | Paid collaboration Last year we went on our first holiday abroad as a family. For something like this there was quite a lot of research involved as I wanted to make it really special and to make sure there was something for all of us. Our needs as a family of three were really quite simple though. All we wanted was some sun, a pool and good food but picking something without really knowing what to look for is hard. We finally decided on Puerto Pollensa in Majorca and we had such an amazing time and we thought
AD | Gifted item Usually when I go on a trip away anywhere it’s with John and Erin. As Erin still gets so tired and definitely can’t do a full day of walking this means we always have the pushchair with us. I don’t have to worry about carrying luggage or bags as either the pushchair holds it or John carries anything else.
